Amidst talks about how Ra.One bombed at the box office and the immense expenses that Shahrukh Khan's company had to incur because the film flopped at the box office, the film managed to bag the 59th National Awards. SRK tweeted, “Even when my babies win a prize at a b'day party, my chest swells with pride. Today my baby got a National Award (v f/x). I lov u Ra.One.”
Ra.One, which was made in both 2D and 3D was made at a whooping budget of Rs 150 crore. Though the film was praised for its visual effects, the critics had slammed the film.
